U.S. military personnel work at computer stations during Exercise Internal Look, a week-long exercise in December 2002 at Camp As Sayliyah that tested U.S. Central Command's recently built deployable headquarters  
Camp As Sayliyah

Location: South of the Qatari capital, Doha.

Personnel: About 1,000 from U.S. Central Command.

Equipment: The camp has 33 warehouses that normally store tons of war materiel, much of which has been dispatched to Kuwait for possible use against Iraq.

Role: Exercise Internal Look, held here in December, simulated a war controlled from a new $58 million deployable command center. All the equipment was left for possible future use. Central Command's commander, Gen. Tommy Franks, would direct any war against Iraq from here.
EDITOR'S NOTE: CNN's policy is to not report information that puts operational security at risk.
